When we stop doing the wrong thing, the right thing will do itself - Elle Luna
This was my year of reinvention. Or discovery. At a time of the year when everyone is looking back on what the year has meant, I find that this is the first year in a long time where I am looking forward with excitement. I am confident in the path ahead even though there is little that I have set in stone. I am excited to see where it will go and how it will develop.
I am most proud of having inspired others to follow that path. Conversations, one on one, with women, who became friends. Discussing their dreams. Imagining their lives in their definition of success. Defying the categories that people placed them in and rising beyond that. Talking about using that fire in their belly, that we thought was fear, to push them up and over the challenges in front of them. Helping each other, supporting each other, and promoting each other.
I haven't made a single plan for the next year. And yet I know that my schedule will fill up as it always does. I have started the work of creating new pieces. I made a huge purchase of supplies. And I have set my mind to creating, learning, exploring, and discovering. I am ready for adventure and challenge and disappointment and uncertainty. And I am so very thankful that I get to call this work my life.
